SHORT COURSE

Furniture Restoration

Description

This course covers aspects of furniture polishing such as French polishing, minor timber repairs, paint stripping, surface preparation, staining, colouring and the application of a variety of finishing material to the surface of the prepared piece.

Whether your interest is in developing a hobby or a full-time career, understanding and learning the processes will give you the confidence to tackle any restoration or conservation project by covering the necessary processes involved in polishing; both on completely new surfaces, as well as cleaning and renewing the old patina found on antique furniture, or the restoration of a period item where you want to retain the old patina and give new life to the surface finish.

Student’s need to bring and work on their own pieces of furniture and a furniture piece is required on your first attendance. We do ask that the piece of furniture is kept to a small item that is easily stored as storage is very limited. Other requirements are safety shoes, safety glasses, ear protection and appropriate clothing for a workshop environment.
